Carson on the New Perspective

Thanks to Adrian Warnock for alerting me to some online lectures by Don Carson on the New Perspective. Lecture 1 Lecture 2 Lecture 3.

Carson is the editor of two large books on the subject of the New Perspective (Justification and Variegated Nomism), which provide responses to the claims of Sanders, Dunn et al. I don’t have the time to read these at the moment, so the lectures are useful as a way of getting a summary of his viewpoint as well as a chance to hear his response to some of the NP criticisms of those books.

Lecture 1 gives a fairly succinct overview of the NP, while the other 2 lectures are used to provide a basic response. Carson does acknowledge that he has much respect for N T Wright, but particularly lays into his making the exile theme the controlling paradigm for his theology. Also, as a bonus, Lecture 3 includes the story of how Douglas Moo got his name!
